A short-lived heel turn couldn't slow Daniel Bryan's rise to the top of the WWE, and hopefully a reported concussion can't either.
Per Richard Gray of Wrestling News World, the WWE has said that Bryan suffered a concussion during Monday night's episode of Raw.
The injury seems to have taken place at the beginning of Bryan's steel cage match against the Usos. Bryan was tagging with Bray Wyatt as part of his heel turn.
Though he participated in the full match, and sat triumphantly on top of the cage as he embraced the WWE universe as a babyface once again, Bryan was apparently feeling the effects of the head injury.
His momentum was seemingly at an all-time high and his first legitimate run as the WWE champion could have been just a few months away. Bryan may have been ready to win the Royal Rumble and then head to WrestleMania 30 to claim the ultimate prize.
For now, his immediate future is a question mark. He will likely need to undergo a battery of tests to determine his fitness to perform.
Stay tuned as more information becomes available.
Follow me. I go back like Wahoo McDaniels and Verne Gagne.
